It’s been a good week. Socially anyway. Less so in a writing and reading sense, but I’m okay with that as it’s been nice to mix things up a little.
What I read
I kicked off the week with Kathryn Croft’s Girl With No Past, before getting into Mary Burton’s I’ll Never Let You Go—as planned.
I also read a children’s novel, Above and Beyond by Leanne Shea Langdown.
What I’m reading
I’m currently reading Kate Morton’s The Lake House. I’m a fan of Morton’s work though it goes against everything I stand for. Okay, that’s an exaggeration. But her novels are usually set in a couple of timeframes so border on the (dreaded) historical fiction genre.
What I wrote
Ummm….. Not. Much.
In fact I was incredibly slack on the writing front, though have drafted my reviews for the two books I read early in the week.
I did however share my thoughts on Above and Beyond, which included an interview with the author, Leanne about her Cheer Chick Charlie series.
What I did
I saw this delightful documentary called Gayby Baby – centred around four children being raised by same-sex parents. It was occasionally confronting, often funny and incredibly poignant. Here’s a preview in case you haven’t heard of it.
In a surprisingly social week (for me!) I went to an author event which involved coffee with Fiona McIntosh. Fiona talked to us about her latest book—The Perfumer’s Secret—as well as writing in general and I’ll share some of her thoughts in a post this week.
I also caught up with a visiting friend, blogger and photographer, Min for a lovely dinner out.
In addition I did some serious Falling Skies binge-watching; getting through seasons 2 and 3. It’s a bit all over the place and I gather s4 is pretty much a lowpoint, but I’m determined to soldier on now that I’m vaguely engaged with the those who’ve survived the alien invasion.
I also watched Pitch Perfect 2 and Child 44 on DVD last night.
What I plan to read
I’m actually not sure what’s next on my reading list as I’m yet to (chronologically) sort this week’s new arrivals (below) against the books already in my towering TBR pile.
And that’s all she wrote. After a quiet reading and blogging week last week I hope to get my mojo back a little this week. So… stay tuned! 😉
